Erith Yacht Club
Welcome to Erith Yacht Club – the Premier Sailing Location on the tidal River Thames. We are fortunate to be situated on a wide stretch of the river within easy distance of London and the M25. (How to find us)

New members are always welcome and encouraged to become involved in all club activities. We are very much a club that encourages a ‘self-help’ attitude to support each other and the Club’s development. The Clubhouse and bar are open on Wednesday lunchtimes, Thursday evenings and Sundays when members are on hand to welcome you. If you wish to visit at other times you are welcome to contact the Club using the ‘Contact EYC’ facility.
Our aims are simple: to provide an affordable sailing venue to all ages and abilities, and to encourage the development of sailing skills through our in-house training and sailing programmes.
EYC has a new clubhouse with new workshops and storage facilities, pontoon, and training boats. With this development, we can now offer enhanced sailing and training under the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training scheme.
EYC has a wide range of activities that it supports, which are briefly outlined below. The links will take you to the relevant page for more details.
SAILING & RACING: We have an active programme of cruiser and dinghy racing, including a number ofThames-based inter-club races. Our social sailing includes trips to St. Kats in central London, east coast cruises, or short down-river pub trips.
TRAINING: As a recognised RYA training centre with a full-time coach, we are able to offer a full range of sailing, racing and powerboat courses.
Socials: Our social programme ties in heavily with our sailing programme, and includes BBQs, jazz and quiz nights, as well as Prize-Giving and the Christmas dinner.
